Sponsor a Senior in Need!
Bean's Senior Care believes every senior dog deserves a quality of life until the very end! As man's best friend, they deserve nothing than a loving heart and caring hands. Currently, Bean's Senior Care provides love, comfort, socialization, quality food and veterinary care for numerous senior dogs. At home, they reside on five acres in a rural town of Fallon, Nevada. Each day the dogs perform a morning routine and prepare for another day working with other community dogs in Maggie's Doggie Daycare. Young pups are learning manners while senior dogs are cared for by the owner of the doggie daycare. Shannon Miller is a blessing not only to our senior dogs but to our community. No dog is turned away, and training is provided during daycare for any dog. Her heart and soul is poured into every dog in need.
She can use your help, however. While still keeping doggie daycare costs down for customers, not only senior dogs but every dog in need at any age is fed well, socialized and trained. Every dog in daycare must meet be properly vaccinated. Shannon's focus to give every dog the care and love it deserves no matter the economic status of the family.
Please visit our photos of Present Senior Dogs below and sponsor a dog today! One third of Shannon's pack are seniors, so approximately 10. Below you will see only the ones she seeks your financial help. You may not have time to help in your busy schedule to care for our old canines, but your financial support ensures that they all have their needs met. Tell us which dog you are sponsoring and if you want your funding to cover vet costs, medication or food. Every penny counts! Without your support, more senior dogs may be kept in cold shelters instead of enjoying love, interaction, and quality of life. You can revisit the dogs in need HERE.
Our Current Seniors
Juno is a 13 year old shepherd mix. He has degenerative mylopathy and will eventually not be able to walk. He is on pain management and has a wheelchair and help em up harness.
Melanie is a 13 year old lab mix who is blind and mostly deaf. She has a mammary tumor, cherry eye, and was very skinny when she arrived.
Benjamin is 13. Him and his sister were dumped at a CA shelter. He has been horribly abused and is shut down.
Harriet is Benjamin's sister. She was extremely abused and was so fearful of being touched that she would bite. She now lets me pick her up and is slowly gaining weight.
Greta is a husky/chow mix that is approximately 10 years old. She is being treated for a thyroid issue that had been untreated in the past which caused her skin to fall off her leg. She is being treated for that and slowly it is healing.
Tigran came from a CA shelter with very bad joint issues and allergies. He is on a special diet and has had an allergy test to help get him healthy.
Alwyn is approximately 4, but because of his physical state, he is with us. He was found in a ditch by a good samaritan unable to walk. The owners didn't want him anymore
Bazella is approximately 12 years old and was dumped at a shelter because she supposedly had cancer. She is doing very well, but has dry eye and is on medicine for it
Boris lost his mom and the family was going to euthanize him. He is 14
How Do I Sponsor?
Pick which dog you are interested in helping. You can donate a dollar a month or more! Every penny counts. Some of the dogs are on the same food, need vaccinations at the same time and are on the same medicine. However, some of the dogs have special needs. If you want your donation to go to food, vet care or anything the senior needs, just let Shannon know. She is dedicated to your wishes helping the dogs. To Sponsor a Dog, click on the donation button. Put in the memo which dog you are supporting and what you want your funds to go towards. For those who make donations of $20 a month or more, a tax-deductible receipt will be provided. While all donations are appreciated, due to the number of seniors and other dogs cared for, time must be prioritized. Those who donate larger amounts are able to obtain an appreciable tax donation amount to write off in their taxes.
Before I donate, I have a few questions...
Where do the senior dogs come from?
The old dogs are found at shelters and the Humane Society. Shannon drives or calls the facilities to find out what seniors are in their care and are not able to find a home due to a lack of interest in those dogs from the community. Not many people want a dog that looks scared in a shelter, sitting in poop, blind or have any other condition that makes them"high maintenance" or "costly" to own. Those are the dogs typically found in Shannon's care. She seeks for those "unwanteds" that still deserve love and care and that still have a zest for life!
